I have 2 of these what are they? Really want to get rid of them any suggestions on how to redo them? The top part comes of its like a plastic round ring then you are left with a wooden thing kinda like a milking stool. I had the geese displayed in it but want to paint it some how suggestions? The round frame thingy I think I'll just leave it as is. It can be either on or off but my main thing is what is this suppose to be and what can I do with it to sell it?
The top is open it could probably hold like a artificial xmas tree.

Once again.......

I'm missing out on alot of blogging friends post and creativity because it is on facebook and no mention of it on there blogs.  I don't get on facebook much but always check the blogs.  Please people can you copy and paste your facebook post for those of us that don't like or don't have facebook so we won't miss out????

Help deleting???

Hi all, I had like 20 post show up from a site I don't remember signing up to follow.  The problem is this site does not apperar in my reading list and when I click on the entries there is no place to unfollow.  These articles are about traveling and are very long, this is the first time it's happened so maybe its a fluke.  Suggestions or thoughts anyone?

Silly me, look what arrived

Major blonde moment, I have been wicked busy latly, and about 2 weeks ago (at least ) there was a package stuck in my door.  I had been waiting for a bundle of boxes assuming it was them I just put them up.  Well I went to get a box today and when I opened it it was my win from Vickie.  This guy is really big can't wait to display it,  I don't think Vicki sews much but the bat was sewed to prim perfection, love how the gauze is draped over the ghost.  She also included a yummy cider candle and a sunflower towel.  I'm lovin the sunflowers this time of the year.  Thanks Vicki I luv it all great work sorry I'm just finding it.

Amazing trade from Yorkiesprimitives

Wow was I suprised when I came home from working the farmers market today.  Earlier I had asked if anyone wanted to swap some springs(still have alot more)for whatever and Valerie said Yes. I sent her a box full and commented how much I liked this picnicing crows on her esty site and that is what she send me!!! I was very suprised not to mention happy.  They are so cute on a vintage rollerskate.  What a unique craft this is.  I have moved it like 4 times but I think it is going to stay on the window with my other swaps and win items.  www.yorkiesprimitives.etsy.com to see more of her OOAK creations.  Plus I asked for some help on my blog and she helped me.  Blogging friends are the best I wish they were real well real life friends.

Stencil Questions

Hi everyone, I have been buying my stencils but would like to make my own any suggestions?  I' m looking for a machine the only ones I know of are the Silouette and the cricuit are there others?  For those of you that make the great sign and shelve sitter blocks the pros and cons of the items you use would be helpful.  I will be doing alot of research on the machine before I purchase so no hurry.  I really like the silouette but looks a little complicated but they have online classes so maybe thats the dirrection to go but dont really need all the extras it does just want a SIMPLE machine for  steciling.... Thanks

Thrifty Finds

Super excited over this whole crate of blocks for $5.00 .  I cant wait to make some Prim blocks which I never have before cause I dont do power tools.

Sheep box was very dirty, didn't think I could clean it up thought it would be a redo, but cleaned up nicely and whats even better its full of metal cookie cutters which will look cute wrapped with homespun.  It was only $1.00.

Basket of Snowmen also a $1.00. I really like them but don't really do seasonal decor, might need to start but will probably end up trading it or selling it at a show.

Now on to Friday the 13th.   I decided to wax my truck. I had it halve done and needed to stop and do something else so I went back to do it and instead of spraying the spray wax I sprayed the tire magic and waxed it on and off then moved on to the next part before I realized it.  Thought you all could use a laugh I blame it on the heat not the blonde of my hair...

Thanks Ellie

How to turn bunnies into sheep......

Wow the bunnies on my blogs are now sheep!!!!!  I wonder who my mysterious angel is that keeps helping me???  I just want to say thank you to all my blogging friends.  I have learned so much from all of you, but the main thing is the friendship and the encouragement I have recieved.  Thank You all

Great Idea

Hi, all thought I would share this wonderful upcycle.  You know those ugly bathroom clocks, well look how pretty they become once you tear them apart and download a clock face from Primdoodles.  Be carful to lay the hands out the way you remove them, I can't get the Minute Maid one to work but lovin the other one, alot of faces to pick from and best of all it's FREE..  I used Cardstock but I think I'll try PhotoPaper to make it a little brighter next time

Thrift store find, need advice

I got this today for only .99!  I need to prim it up!!! Would like to keep the white overdress and white pantas, but the rosy underdress needs to go.  I was hoping to dye it brown but thats not working, anyone know where I can get a simple dress pattern?  The ribbons are gonna dissapear also.  The brown yarn hair is what I would like advice on.  Any ideas anyone, I am thinking maybe to cover it up with a bonnet? Ps I love her brown felt like shoes.  Great find on this just needs a little Prim  Magic

Feedsack pillow

When I first got this pattern, I was confused, I thought there would be a pattern with the graphics, but that just made me challange myself to figure it out.  Very happy with the way they turned out but my printer didn't like loading the material, I think I had Onsenburg instead of Muslin.  This is 2 of a set of 4 patterns that came from Samantha.  Proud of myself this weekend with the Naptime bunny (Grr) and pillows both done satisfactory but not perfect completed, alll stuff I've never tried before.  Oh and I also learned how to use the automatic threader on my sewing machine!!!

Snowy Easter here!!!

4-6 inches and windy gotta love Maine, the way life should be motto doesn't quite fit today, Happy Easter All.

Pc update, Grunge jar update, and Kindle fire update

My pc went to the pc doctor(a different one this time)last thursday. Oor around $100 It's running much better. Comes to find out just needed more RAM no idea why the first pc doc didn't check that. Oh well its workin fine now.
Tried the grungy jar thing again. Painted the jar brown then sprinkled it with coffee grounds. That left a few spots that needed touchups which I waited for it to dry then sprayed clear coat then sprinkled the grounds again. This is the best method I have found thanks for sharing but the touchups were kinda hard.
Still can't scroll down on the blogs but I found out Crafty Stichers
is also having the same promblem. I guess thats good news cause hopefully that means its the system and not us. Anyone else having this problem or is anyone not having this promblem???
